GF Product Testing - Pamela's Chocolate Brownie Mix , Part II

As I stood attentively at the microwave sure enough the mixture started to rise. It looked like a cool science experiment. Sixty seconds later my brownie was ready. The end product was a dense and fudgy brownie. Perhaps a little too dense. If you like your brownie light and fluffy this isn't the one. The taste was a little off. It's not the most chocolaty brownie I've ever had. Oddly enough it was also a little salty most likely coming from the addition of sea salt. I found it to detract rather than enhance. The brownie is best when eaten right away. I saved a piece for the following day but that proved to be an unwise decision. Overall, I love the idea but hate the execution. Hopefully with time some much needed improvements will be made.

Overall Rating: 2.5 out of 5

GF Product Testing - Pamela's Chocolate Brownie Mix , Part I

I do love a good brownie, who doesn't? When I bite into one the world seems to fade away. When I saw Pamela's single serving Chocolate Brownie Mix I thought to myself  "I've got to try this!"

The instructions are pretty straight forward. Simply pour water and oil into the dry mix, then stir. I was a little concerned at first I didn't think there was enough liquid to go around but if you keep at it the mixture eventually comes together. The batter is pretty thick and takes on the consistency of silly putty with the sheen of dark lacquered wood (see picture). The only thing left to do is to pop it in the microwave for 60 seconds.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

A big thank you to all of you who have read my blog. I can't believe it but I have officially written 52 post. It's amazing how time flies by. I just thought I was going to write a small little blog about my GF life but it ended up being more than that. What will the next 52 post bring us? I'm not exactly sure but whatever it is we'll do it together.
